After checking Carl's Retail Reloaded mod I discovered one of his resources override the same interaction my mod modifies. If you want to use both together, you will need to create an overrides folder and install my mod in it. My mod already includes the changes made by Carl.

July 28th /2022 / The mod is compatible with the latest patch!





Explanation:

When I realized about the business in Get To Work I got really happy, I mean, it was something that I wanted to have on Sims 3. Then, when I bought and downloaded the expansion pack, the first thing I aimed to test was businness obviously, I started with a female sim, built her her big electronics emporium and I opened as soon as I could.

After one week, the hard part came: THE HIGH BILLS!, for me that I am that kind of gamer who doesn't use tricks, it would be really hard to move on this situation, on that moment, I remembered something.. The retail perks!. Quickly, I started for some one that could help me to improve my sells and well, I found that one... The sure sale perk, but it was very expensive so I started to work pretty hard in order to collect the necessary points to buy that retail perk and when I got them I realized something: SURE SALES HAVE A COOL-DOWN PERIOD, a very long period. I was kind of amazed and annoyed ( true story xD ) and I decided to create this mod.

How does this mod work?

Simple, the thing that blocks the interaction is a buff, a buff called "Retail SureSale Cooldown" and it's invisible, so we don't have any way to eliminate it in game. What my mod does is to decrease the period of time that this buff lasts.




Which one do I have to install?

Just one, there are four flavors. You can pick up one between those four. The first one creates a cool-down period of 1 hour, the second, one of 2 hours, the third one, one of 3 hours and the last one takes the cool-down period out of the road for being crashed by a crazy pig. ^^

IMPORTANT

This mod will conflict with any other one that alters the S4_6017E896_00000003_000000000001B6EB file.


Install instructions

1) Unzip the rar 2) Place the package inside the mods directory

3) Play!

Hi, I have tried this today. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be working for me. I had one Sure Sale interaction and then the option didn't didn't reappear straight away.
I have all latest patches and running all packs including Dine Out.

Thank you. Going to give it a shot.
To be honest I'm tired of how tedious retail is. My workers don't help me at all, and it takes the entire sim day - every day! I wish I could just leave it to my employees.
This will have to do instead. Pop inside, use sure sale a few times, then go back home! Thank you!

That's why I had to do this.

You're welcome.

Not sure if this was meant to happen but the cooldown still applies (in a few hours) before the sim can use it again. What the sim can do is queue the sure sale up (pause the game) and then play it again, that would prevent any cooldown from happening.
